Federation Men’s Philanthropy presents
Bitcoin: Blockbuster or Bubble?

A conversation with Bryan Bodner of BlockFi & Kent Shepherd of Franklin Templeton Investment Solutions

Thursday, March 18, 2021  |  7 to 8:15 p.m.  |  Zoom

It’s been 12 years since the world’s first entirely digital currency was launched - and Bitcoin and its competitors have captivated speculators and puzzled more risk-averse investors ever since. Will cryptocurrency’s promise of faster payments and lower fees upend banking as we know it? Or is it a flash in the pan, similar to the tulip mania that shocked the Dutch economy in 1637? In this program, we’ll look at the pros and cons of cryptocurrency and what it means for the average investor.
